Ringing In a New Era

Thanks to our donors, we're celebrating the reopening of the Memorial Belltower at Henry Square, 100 endowed faculty positions and more.

Your Campaign Update

Since its public launch in October 2016, the Think and Do the Extraordinary Campaign has transformed NC State, with over 120,000 donors coming together to create more scholarships, support more faculty and redefine the learning experience.

Our physical campus has seen transformations as well, from places like Fitts-Woolard Hall and the in-progress Plant Sciences Building to our most beloved landmark: the Memorial Belltower at Henry Square.

On Friday, May 14, thanks to a century’s worth of generosity and commitment from alumni, including Bill (’81) and Frances Henry, real bells rang out across NC State for the first time. And every time those bells ring, their sound will remind us of something extraordinary: the incredible ways in which the Wolfpack has come together to honor our legacy and to set the course for our future through this Campaign.
